    QGreenland Educator Workshop 2023 Design Learning Activities with GIS Tools

    Stipend Opportunity: $250

    Application Deadline: Monday, April 17, 2023

    Program Overview: Authentic learning activities for undergraduate students can be difficult to find and time-consuming to generate. QGreenland invites educators to a dedicated workshop to co-develop learning resources using QGreenland data. The workshop will bring together instructors across disciplines to create learning resources which use Greenland-focused data that can then serve the larger community. The workshop will include training on how to use research-based pedagogical approaches. This workshop is best suited for formal undergraduate or graduate educators. Familiarity with QGIS or willingness to complete the beginner tutorial series is preferred.

    Teaching Earth and Space Science with PhET Interactive Simulations

    Webinar via Zoom, Thursday, April 20, 2023, 1:00 pm PT, 2:00 pm MT, 3:00 pm CT, 4:00 pm ET

    Registration Deadline Wednesday, APril 19, 2023

    Webinar Description:

    PhET Interactive Simulations project at the University of Colorado Boulder creates free interactive simulations and virtual labs for science and math learning. PhET simulations are teaching tools that can support conceptual learning and skill development, but they are most effective when used in a teaching context that makes use of evidence-based, student-centered teaching and learning practices. During this webinar, participants will get a brief introduction to PhET simulations by engaging in open play with a simulation, exploring the website, coming up with simple sequences of how simulations can be linked to teach core concepts, and learning more about how to go deeper with PhET pedagogies.


    Duration: 1 hour
    Format: Presentations will take place through a Zoom Meeting screen-sharing session. The webinar will be recorded.
    Accessing the Webinar: Instructions for joining the webinar will be email to participants the day before the event. Learn more about accessing the webinar .
